The student senate at the University of California-Davis recently decided against disarming its campus police force by a narrow 6-5 vote.
Several individuals who voted against the measure did not disagree with the principle but did have issues with the resolution’s wording, according to The California Aggie.
So, who are these fools that support such idiocy?
One supporter of the measure, sociology Ph.D. candidate Blu Buchanan, told the California Aggie that “university police officers frequently do violence to people of color, folks with disabilities and queer and trans folks on our campuses.”
The issue of police has been a contentious one in the UC-Davis community during this past spring semester.
UC-Davis English professor Joshua Clover garnered national media attention for anti-police tweets that he has made in the past, which have included messages such as, “I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?” and, “I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore.”
Lots more at Campus Reform, go read it, and do not be surprised if you find that the radical leftists of Black Lives Matter are behind much of this
A student petition demands that Yale University disarm its police officers and make a donation to Black Lives Matter in response to “state-sanctioned violence”.
A petition circulating Yale’s student body and addressed to Yale University President Paul Salovey calls for the immediate disarmament of campus police in the wake of a shooting on Tuesday
“Armed campus police are a risk to the students they are sworn to protect and to the communities in which schools reside,” the petition states. “There is an epidemic of police violence and police brutality in this country, and this shooting all too tragically shows that Yale is not immune to this issue. We will not allow the Yale Police Department to contribute to this epidemic by acting violently against members of the community that we have chosen from all over this country and the world.”
Ah yes, the police are shooting Black people in the streets with impunity narrative. It is a false narrative, easily disproved, but the BLM leadership is us to get
social justice power and money, and to further leftism.
